2018-19 Downtown Missoula Master Plan Update

Missoula is in the process of updating its Downtown Missoula Master Plan. The Master Plan Update will serve to guide decisions over the next 10 years impacting the city’s historic downtown and adjoining neighborhoods. The critical study areas include: (1) Land Use, (2) Transportation, (3) Downtown Housing, (4) Parking, (5) Street Design Standards, and (6) Retail and Commercial Business Development.

After nearly eight months of community engagement, planning, writing and editing, Dover, Kohl & Partners will returned to Missoula May 21-23 to present the draft Downtown Master Plan to the community. The Community Presentation will took place on Wednesday, May 22 at 5:30 pm at The WIlma (131 S. Higgins) in Downtown Missoula.

“It is an exciting time for our community as we assemble together for this very important visioning for our future,” said Tim France, owner of Worden’s Market and President of the Downtown Business Improvement District Board of Directors. “Downtown is the Heart of Missoula, and everyone who lives here is vested in this place. It is what defines us and sets us apart from anywhere USA. Our community’s engagement in updating the strategic plan for Downtown is essential and valued, as we continue to build on this vibrant city center for centuries to come.”
